"My mother worked as a domestic, two, sometimes three jobs at a time because she didn’t want to be on welfare. She felt very strongly that if she gave up and went on welfare, that she would give up control of her life and of our lives, and I think she was probably correct about that. … But, one thing that she provided us was a tremendous example of what hard work is like."
by:
Dr. Ben Carson
(1951-) American neurosurgeon, former presidential candidate, 17th United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
